‘We Have Recruited Convicted Felons.’ But Maj. Mike Almy Wasn’t Qualified to Serve Because He’s a Homogay

It’s like, jeez, is that activist journalist Rachel Maddow ever going to give this Don’t Ask Don’t Tell thing a rest? Only Joy Behar beats Rachel in the number of homosexual guests she has on her show. (Sarcasm, folks, sar-cas-emmmmmm.) Tonight, it was cutie Maj. Mike Almy, kicked out of the Air Force in 2006, during that Iraq War thing, thanks to — you guessed it — DADT.

You remember Mike from his NPR interview, where he detailed how he was relieved of service after 13 years serving his country because his private emails were searched. Which was, apparently, a priority during “the height of the insurgency” in Iraq, he says. Nevermind that he didn’t violate DADT; his emails were searched without his permission or solicitation.

He’s an American hero, and we want to hug the crap out of him.
